While Howard Hewett and Jeffrey Daniel choose to tread the oldies circuit with their version of Shalamar (see ), the other core member, JODY WATLEY continues to pursue her own successful career and to that end she’s released a new single to coincide with her birthday (30th January). She won’t mind us revealing that she’s a sprightly 65 and on the evidence of this new ‘Everlasting’, she can clearly give younger artists a real run for their money!

‘Everlasting’ is a crisp, gentle, contemporary soul beater – infectious. The song delivers an important message. Ms W says: “More than just a song, ‘Everlasting’ is  a reflection of life’s journey of lessons, resilience, self-belief and never giving up. I’m excited to share its empowering message because it’s really to remind everyone to keep moving forward and embrace the timeless strength within us all – to stay EVERLASTING, I am an example of that.”

‘Everlasting’ was penned and produced by Jody and her longtime collaborator Rodney Lee – a keyboardist and producer while additional production and remix work comes from Italian producer and DJ Alex Di Ciò who has remixed several of Jody’s’ songs in the past.
